Revival of Q’barran Wyvern Hunt Takes 12 Wyverns

NEWTHRONE—For the first time since the start of the Last War, aristocrats from across Khorvaire traveled to Q’Barra this month to hunt the reclusive, deadly silver wyverns.

The wyverns, possessed of uncommon cunning and a virulent poison, claimed 16 lives among the forty teams of hunters assembled at the invitation of King Sebastes ir’Kesslan.

But with a record 12 wyverns taken during the hunt, ir’Kesslan declared the hunt a “resounding success.”

In a decree from the under-construction royal manor at Adderport, ir’Kesslan singled out three teams in particular for their hunting prowess.

A group led by Aundair’s Thonan ir’Barandeau claimed the largest wyvern—one with a wingspan measuring 28 feet.

House Deneith’s team, led by Ruhillia d’Deneith, presented the king with the first wyvern-head, acquired after only six hours of hunting.

And a hunter from the Eldeen Reaches known only as “Thousand” presented the king with a silver wyvern that he said he hunted without the aid of a team. His claim was obviously unverifiable, but King ir’Kesslan lavished praise on him in the decree.

Royal courtiers said the king was sufficiently pleased with the wyvern hunt that he planned on making it an annual event, as it was in the days of old Galifar. Persistent rumors further indicate that the king may don hunting garb and join the other hunters in the field next year.
